UP NEXT: We’re reading and discussing Rebekah Manley‘s Alexandra and the Awful, Awkward, No Fun, Truly BadDates: Picture Book Parody for Adults. This conversation will be moderated by Amy Gentry, author of the feminist thrillers Good as Gone, Last Woman Standing, and Bad Habits.
Follow Alexandra and her adorable French bulldog pup Lottie as Alex goes on 30 dates in 30 days in this charming parody/comedic dating horror story all about dating apps, being stood up, and the other joys of millennial dating culture. Set in the thick of our swipe right society, newly thirty-year-old Alexandra decides she’s got nothing to lose and sets off on a 30-dates-in-30-days adventure. With her trusty French bulldog pup Lottie, Alex experiences the worst of millennial dating culture. From know-it-alls and bores to Mama’s boys and no-shows and everything else in between, you’ll be laughing along with Alex as she searches for love but ultimately discovers something a lot more meaningful. Alexandra and the Awful, Awkward, No Fun, Truly Bad Dates is the perfect gift for anyone who has swiped right, blind dated, or simply been a little bit lost in love at one point in their life.
